Anyway! After the movies we went to eat at Golden Corral then we headed home.
I am especially delighted about my "Michaels haul". I spent $73.63. I saved $15.37 using 2 coupons; a 50% off one items and a $20 off the total purchase.

I got 5 Recollections dimensional border stickes on clearance for $.99 that are an Easter and Birthday theme. I racked up on some other $.99 Recollections dimensional stickers that are cameras, butterflies, word titles/bubbles, cupcakes, and doodling designs. I got 2 packs of Jolee's circus dimensional stickers for $1.99; on clearance. I got 2 packs of Michaels flowers (blooming petals and botanical flora). I got some Heidi Swapp goodies that were 40% off: 1 pack of sheer stickers, 3 packs of outline stickers, 2 packs of themed cards, and 2 packs of banners. I got some American Crafts die-cut wood cards on clearance for $1.49. I got 3 Darice acrylic gem border strips.
